Last week producer Jason Blum teased we would see a Halloween trailer in June. It got me super excited because I’ve been looking forward to more Halloween in my life! In a series of Tweets today Blum revealed the new trailer will drop on Friday, June 8th!

It started with this tweet:

Of course, you can imagine the reaction he got on Twitter. The thread has become a nest of funny gifs. Here are some that caught my eye.

Yes, a dancing Michael Myers sounds just about right.

So is an extremely excited yell!

Finally, the Spongebob and Patrik Starfish gif by far does the best job to show how fans are feeling about the announcement today.

Halloween is directed by Gordon Green and will see the much-anticipated return of Jamie Lee Curtis in her role as Laurie Strode. It was written by Danny McBride and David Gordon Green. John Carpenter will provide the score for this new film.

What Can We Expect to See

The movie is expected to release this October. During this year’s CinemaCon,Comicbook.com got a sneak peak of what’s in store for Halloween:

Filmmakers are “here to investigate” the events of Halloween in 1978. They approach Michael Myers in prison. They show him his mask and every prisoner around starts lashing out. The teenage granddaughter’s friends discuss Laurie, each has a version of the true story which happened years later. Laurie tells a police officer she has prayed that Michael Myers would escape, so she could kill him. She has a dummy which she uses for target practice. The prison bus crashes and Michael Myers escapes. He approaches a woman in a gas station and drops bloody teeth over the stall. He puts his mask on. The Halloween classic music begins as he goes through a town on Halloween night, with real weapons. Laurie rushes the kids to go home, shoots at him through a window, and it was only a reflection. Chaos ensues. Laurie tells the filmmakers they should believe in the boogeyman. Later, a babysitter tries to close a closet door for a kid, and it won’t close. It bursts open and Michael Myers is there with a knife.

Jamie Lee Curtis also spoke about the film saying:

“I first played Laurie Strode when I was 19-years-old. We had no money when we made Halloween. Even the Michael Myers mask was originally a William Shatner costume mask picked up at a local store. What they created would come to stand as an unyielding, sustaining influence in the canon of horror. It is still terrifying in its simplicity.”

Halloween slashes it’s way to theaters October 19th.
